How do I mention someone in my story?

When sharing a photo or video to your story, you can mention someone:

  1. Tap in the top left of your screen or swipe right from anywhere in Feed
  2. Take a photo or video, then tap
  3. Type @ followed immediately by their username, then select the person you'd like to mention
When you mention someone in your story, their username will appear in your story with an underline. Anyone who can see your story can tap it to go to their profile.

People you mention will get a push notification telling them that you've mentioned them in your story. They'll also get a direct message from you that includes a preview of your story. This preview disappears from the message thread after 24 hours.

You can mention up to 10 people in each photo or video you share to your story. If you mention multiple people, they'll each get a message from you individually.
